Client Feedback: ASP®-CSP® Exam Courses

We love getting honest feedback from our clients. In addition to letting us know how we are doing, they let us know what worked or didn't work for them while preparing for their ASP® and CSP® exams.

Read on to find out more.

We are serious about maintaining the integrity of the ASP® and CSP® exams and the certification process. Please help us by not posting any specific exam questions or exam content in your comments. If you do, we will have to modify or remove your feedback. Thank you for respecting this.

Thanks to Mike Edens, the Bowen EHS team, and my ASP/CSP prep group for a great exam prep experience. It was a tough exam, but the review course undoubtedly pushed me over the edge and helped me pass. Good luck to the other test takers out there!

I am so excited to share that I passed the ASP today on my first try! I finished the ASP-CSP Prep Course in December 2018. I was super nervous but found that the course had me completely ready. As I needed help with math and calculations, I did lots of practice in those areas. I used the Bowen EHS online quizzes and practice tests to prepare along with my notes from the course. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was not as much math as I expected. There were a couple of tricky ones (ideal gas law is my eternal struggle) but nothing I freaked out about. I followed Russ's strategy for test taking and had plenty of time. I even finished about 20 minutes early because I was afraid that I would overthink some of the questions that I probably answered correctly the first time through. :) Thank you, Russ, for such a great course! Now on to the CSP!

I passed the CSP today. I utilized the full 330 minutes. Study material included Bowen course, Bowen practice questions, CSP Pocket prep app and last minute picked up the Mometrix flash cards. Text material included Yates and Brauer.  Hazardous materials, legislation and fall protection questions were many but this exam focused more on management aspects in comparison to the ASP. Thank you Russ and your team for the support. I’m definitely relieved this is over good luck to all preparing to sit the exam.

I passed the CSP yesterday after finishing the Bowen CSP Prep course on Thursday. I do not recommend scheduling the exam without at least a 2-week gap after the end of the prep course. I felt that I needed more time to prepare. The Bowen EHS course helped a lot. I would not have gotten questions on liability, safety management systems, the role of front-line supervision on safety, and ventilation correct without the prep course. I did not read any of the recommended texts, but I did complete the BCSP Self Assessment, which included several questions that were on the exam. If I was going to study again, I'd focus on risk assessment tools (FMEA, Fault Tree Analysis, Life Cycle Analysis, etc.), IH, reliability, statistics/probability, and management systems. Thanks to Bowen and especially William Pate, a great instructor for the CSP Prep Course!

I passed the ASP! This was a difficult exam. There were a lot of questions on electricity and on ISO/ANSI standards that required a more nuanced understanding than I had studied for. Like others have said there were a lot of questions that weren't covered but the Bowen resources and the ASP/CSP prep course definitely helped focus my studying and pass!

I sat for the CIH exam yesterday and received the P+ I worked for!!!! Just wanted to say THANKS to the crew at Bowen EHS and all the studying sessions, etc. This was my second attempt after missing the mark last fall. Bowen allowed me to sit through another round of classes and it paid off. Best regards and good luck to those who are sitting next week!

I passed the ASP exam! Yea!!! Some of these posts helped me, so I thought that I would share my study experience. Maybe this might help someone else.

First of all, I participated in every Bowen ASP-CSP class session. Most of them I reviewed again to make sure that I understood the topics well. Once the classes were over, I discovered and did the practice quizzes about 30 times (no exaggeration) until I was continually getting 80% to 90%.

I also purchased and studied the "ASP Safety Fundamentals Exam" by Mometrix. This also had 200 exam questions that I copied and cut into strips that I used as flashcards. I carried them with me with a rubber band, so I could study them while I had a few minutes. I went over those questions at least 15 times. This was a big help as well.

I also purchased the BCSP practice exam. They only give you 100 questions, but it gives you an idea as to how the questions are written on the exam. I got to where I was getting around 95% of the questions right after about 10 to 15 times. I looked at the ASP Blueprint. It didn't help. The only thing I got out of it was that you had to know everything.

I scheduled the exam 6 weeks after the last Bowen class. There were not very many days available. I studied almost every night for those 6 weeks. I was not going to say, "I should have studied harder". I couldn't! I did not know what else I could do. I was burned out from studying. I suggest that everyone take the exam within a month of completing the Bowen class.

Completed the course 3 months ago. Thought that Patrick did a good job at teaching. I passed the ASP in August, then passed the CSP at the end of September.

I have seen 3 to 4 other posts of people passing the CSP on recently. Well, I did as well. One thing that helped me was the quizzes and practice tests on Bowen EHS's site. I will always promote this website as I believe it is the best way to prepare for the CHMM, CSP, and the CIH. I am done taking tests for awhile.
